The company engaged in the effective leadership development program. This program was able to help supervisors motivate people to a higher level of productivity, accomplish more through time management, learn the art of delegation and giving direction, exercise authority effectively, handle and prevent problems with others, and develop the potential of people. Effective leadership development consists of a series of front-end activities to include pre-course expectation setting, course kick-off, and a goals workshop. Following the initial meetings were a series of interactive training sessions on leadership and management subjects that included in-session and out-of-session activities. After the training sessions were post-course activities and reinforcement from the instructor at 30, 60, and 90 days, 6 months and 12 months to encourage participants to utilize their new skills and to verify results.
